GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A 53-year-old woman will spend at least three years in prison for shooting her husband in their Antelope Valley home.

Lorna Abell was sentenced to three to eight years in prison after previously pleading no contest to aggravated assault and battery in June. She will be given credit for almost a year she spent in jail since the shooting.

Abell shot her husband Robin Abell in the stomach twice on Sept. 18.

According to court documents, Lorna Abell told investigators her husband attacked her after she threatened to turn him in for Social Security fraud.
